For followers of popular culture, there is nothing more compelling than a Star Wars tattoo. This renowned universe is filled with brilliantly captivating icons and worlds to replicate as body art!

Guys can gain deep respect from their peers with riveting Star Wars ink.

The non-human characters are especially ravishing when they are turned into body art. Darth Vader is the most preeminent villain in the series, and his infamous mask boldly captures his evil might. The Stormtrooper is another archetypal symbol of the original trilogy. Perhaps the most thrilling enemy is the bounty hunter Boba Fett.


On the Jedi side, there is plenty of righteous swanks revealed by the robotic likenesses of R2D2 and C-3PO. Chewbacca is another cult hit that keeps earning more prominence. Of course, you can’t forget about Yoda either.

Star Wars spaceships also make fantastic tattoos. The Millennium Falcon is luxuriously discerning for Rebels, and followers of the Empire share their fond appreciation of the Death Star. TIE Fighters are innately recognizable vessels, and the same is true of its opposing X-wing Starfighter.


You can use the force of these Star Wars tattoos to amplify your baronial fashion sense with kingly splendor.

What Is Star Wars?

Star Wars is an American epic space opera media franchise created by George Lucas. The franchise began with the eponymous 1977 film and quickly became a worldwide pop-culture phenomenon.

The first film, later subtitled Episode IV – A New Hope, was followed by the sequels Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1983), forming what is collectively referred to as the original trilogy. A prequel trilogy was later released, consisting of Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999), Episode II – Attack of the Clones (2002) and Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (2005). Finally, a sequel trilogy began with Episode VII – The Force Awakens (2015), continued with Episode VIII – The Last Jedi (2017), and will conclude with Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker (2019).

The film series expanded into other media, including television series, video games, novels, comic books, theme park attractions and themed areas, as well as other kinds of media, resulting in an all-encompassing fictional universe, which, in 2014, required an almost total reboot, resulting in the formation of the distinct Star Wars Legends continuity of (fictional) events, now obsolete, which includes media preceding the reboot and a few later releases. Star Wars holds a Guinness World Records title for the “Most successful film merchandising franchise”. In 2018, the total value of the Star Wars franchise was estimated at US$65 billion, and it is currently the fifth-highest-grossing media franchise of all-time.

The Meaning Of A Star Wars Tattoo

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last four decades, you should at the least know who the main Star Wars characters are. Dating back to the 1970s, people love getting inked with the Star Wars tattoos to represent a variety of things.

If you connect with this movie series and are looking to really leave your mark on this world, you can not go wrong with a creative Star Wars tattoo.

One of the most popular reasons many people are getting inked with the Star Wars tattoos today is simply as a reminder of their childhood. Many adults today can tell you exactly what theater, how many times, and where they saw and fell in love with the very first Star Wars movie.

Regardless if you were for good or the dark side, the image you get inked with is more of a reminder of days gone by. Even though the series continues today, there is something about those iconic images of Darth Vader, the Stormtroopers, the Death Star, or lightsabers, that really brings you back to being a kid at heart.

Today, the newer generation appreciate everything Star Wars, but they must incorporate their unique twist on the designs to make them their own. Rather than getting the Star Wars tattoos to remind them of a time long ago, these designs are creative, unique, and telling of this person’s being.

These kids today choose a design that incorporates Yoda saying something relative to the day, Darth Vader’s menacing glare, or an image of Princess Leia and her commitment to good over evil. Quotes from the movies, secondary characters, or combinations of the old and new, all appealing aspects of bringing attention to one’s love for anything related to Star Wars.

Making the Star Wars tattoos all your own is something that ink lovers today have done to separate themselves from the pack. The font used for the Star Wars is iconic, and using it to spell other words like the bride and groom, are a throwback to the shoe and everything it represents.

Having two characters fighting with lightsabers can be representative of the struggle within of good versus evil, or if can represent having to battle certain inner demons on a daily basis.

There are many unique symbols specific to this movie series that connect with body ink lovers too. Perhaps, on one hand, you want to show your dark side or allegiance to good, but want to do it in a clever way.

Then you have the options to get inked with the First Republic symbol, Sith Empire symbol, Jedi Order symbol, Open Circle Fleet symbol, or the Black Sun symbol. Each has a unique meaning, and either you instantly get it or you are left scratching your head. Those in the know will appreciate your nod to the movies.

The Star Wars tattoos run the full range of good, evil, and a little of both. Whether you are for good, fighting inner demons, or have a burning desire to save the empire, these tattoo designs are fun, creative, and definitely unique.

Neotraditional Star Wars Tattoos

Something that is old and irrelevant cannot be modernized right? Wrong! Old designs can still come to life because of artists and enthusiasts that gives out passionate efforts to modernize things that are considered old. Look at vintage cars and objects for example, yes they are old but they can be considered “rad” or cool when given proper care. This is also the same case with tattoo designs that are considered classics. Most millennials would think that having classic tattoo designs makes them feel old. This is the reason why neo-traditional tattoo designs were born. Artists and enthusiasts alike would like to revitalize the classic designs so that they will still have a foothold in an industry that is completely changing with the times. They want these classic designs to also change with the times and have a new face, a new breath of life, a new demographic. These neo-traditional tattoos hope to be the successor of the big classic designs of the old days and bring a new era to the said classic designs.

Skulls still hold the same meaning, wolves also. American imagery, which is commonly used in this approach of tattoo design, still holds the same meaning as its classic tattoo counterpart.

What truly makes a tattoo design be classified as a neo-traditional tattoo is its bold choice of colors. Most often, neo-traditional tattoos will have eye-popping colors be mixed with other eye-popping colors to make the tattoo stand out from the crowd. Another element that we commonly see in neo-traditional tattoos are the bold outlines of the objects of the tattoo. These bold outlines also help to make the tattoo design pop out and make it easier to mix different colors since there is this somewhat sufficient boundary to each color.

Do not know what we are talking about? Here are some neo-traditional tattoo ideas we have seen on the web to help you.

Geometry is a branch of mathematics that is concerned with questions of shape, size, the relative position of figures, and the properties of space. (source: www.wikipedia.org) This branch of mathematics, and in extension, science, is mostly considered as a graphic, logical, and numerical form of thinking. It is filled with figures, lines, and measurements which makes it a very interesting field of mathematics.

We are pretty sure, however, that the reason why geometric tattoo designs were inspired by geometry was not that of the measurements but rather the figures in this intellectual field. Geometric tattoos explore the idea of using numerous lines to form a unique shape and figure which can accentuate a simple tattoo.

Since its introduction in the body art industry a few years ago, a lot of designs were made that can be classified under the geometric tattoo design category. Most of these designs are modern and artsy and here are some of the designs which feature geometric themes:

If you are a man and you are looking for the perfect tattoo, Star Wars is the right choice for you. You will find that a lot of other men have had the same idea – a lot of men are interested in Star Wars, and who wouldn’t be? It’s awesome! – which means that you are in good company. It also does not make it look as though you are trying too hard to look masculine, like it might if you went for one of the more typical “bad boy” tattoos which, let’s face it, make you look not such much a hard “man” as a bad “boy”.
